Stakeholders in Nigeria’s Professional League Football have been told to consider a regrouping of match fixtures according to regions or conferences, in the face of rising insecurities and huge cost involved for clubs participating in the league.
The latest call was made by MFM’s Director of Football, Davidson Adejuwon during an exclusive chat with TVC News in Lagos.
Reports have emerged in recent weeks of clubs attacked on their way to match venues by Robbers and Kidnappers, with Adamawa United and FC Robo Queens being the latest victims.
Adejuwon explained that the welfare and security of players must be considered an utmost priority beyond other sentiments.
